The Paper Players & SAS4Kids guest

It’s a beautiful Fall day here today, perfect for the card I’ve made! 🙂  I’m going to enter a new card challenge for me over at the Paper Players PP263.  I think I’ve entered there before, but it must have been a long time ago.  The challenge there is to create a Fall scene.

pp263My card almost looks like sketch card of this scene, I didn’t realize it until I just set my card by my computer just now:)  So here it is:

SDC17743I found this awesome paper that had leaves all over it and it made me think of leaves falling on the ground.  I found several different examples on Pinterest and finally decided on this layout.  I used Lawn Fawn Sweater Weather for the tree and leaves.  For the pumpkins, I used So Thankful. I made the hills with Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders.  The yellow paper and the leaf paper were just misc. papers from my stash, and I used Stampin’ Up! Soft Sky for the background.

I decided not to put a sentiment on, because I will be sending it to Send A Smile 4 Kids and with no sentiment, it can be used for any occasion:)  Be sure to go check out the challenge blog over at SAS4Kids for more card ideas! 🙂


Now I’d like to share some cards from one of my repeat card senders, Jill Blasche from TX.  Jill has been sending me cards since I started volunteering for SAS4Kids.  She sent one of my very first boxes! 🙂  Jill does a wide variety of cards, but will also send multiples:)

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERASAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAWhy do kids love spiders for Halloween?!!!  Yuk! lol  Jill really knows her spider cards! lol


SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERALook at all these cards with the same black and orange striped paper.  They all look so different!  I could send all these cards to the same hospital unit, yet everyone would have a different card! 🙂


SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERASAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAThe pumpkin paper here is the same as the card above, but doesn’t look anywhere near the same!  Also, look at the black card on the far right, it has the orange and black stripe!  Jill does an incredible job mixing her papers! 🙂


SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERASAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERALast cards, but this is two boxes of cards!  Jill sent me a box that was lost in the mail! 😦  Every cardmakers worst nightmare! 😦  She sent me a replacement box of cards, and then, of course, the first box was found! 🙂  So I got two awesome boxes of cards! 🙂  I believe I’m set for older kids for Halloween, now I can use some little kid cards for Halloween! 🙂  Thank you Jill, for all your wonderful cards, I know the kids will love them! 🙂


Thanks for coming by today! 🙂  I hope everyone is enjoying the Fall and Halloween cards! 🙂  Hope to see you again soon! 🙂

Fred, She Said Winged Things Blog Hop

Wow, I’ve been up so long, it’s a new day!  Ok, it’s only about 1am, but I’m still up working away so you all can have a chance at an awesome prize!  So without further delay, here we go.

Welcome to the Fred, She Said Winged Things Blog Hop! Summer is in full swing and flying by fast, and the FSS team wants to share a winged wonderland with you!

Here is my first card.  That’s right, if you continue on past the end, you will see an extra card with a brand new Fred She Said image;)

How cute is this little Emma?  I did NOT color this image myself!  I got the pre-coloerd set:) You can get an uncolored set, for those who like to do it all themselves;)   This image is called Emma In Her Cool Cap. I added the butterflies with Stampin’ Up!s Beautiful Wings Embosslits.  I think they make a perfect addition to Emma’s image:)  I will list my supplies below.

You can click on my card to make it larger:
This is a brand new image from Fred She Said called Daisies & Ladybugs. If you’ve ever been here before, you know I follow the sketches pretty closely, and beyond that, I try to keep my cards Clean and Simple (CAS).   I could have added more, but I love it just the way it is:)  I hope you like it too and you’ll head over to the Fred She Said store and check out all the other images:)
I did NOT color this image myself!  As usual, I got the pre-colored images;)  Actually, this set includes BOTH the uncoloured and pre-coloured images, how great is that?!  I have a few more cards with this image in the works and will be posting them during the next week or so.  I hope you will come back and take a look:)
Thanks for coming by today, I know this was a pretty long post today!  I hope you will continue on with the Blog Hop and take your chance to win the great prizes! 🙂
I am soooooo tired:(  I hope you will forgive me if I come back when I wake up and add the supply list.
